Yeah About That Idea I Had...
Coming home from work I had a great post all worked up. The title; the setup; the final joke.
And then I with the storm of the century and lost it all.
For me writing is a mental activity. I usually am performing some physical task while my mind wanders off and occupies itself.
When it comes back it has a story to tell. All I have to do is write it down, while I remember it.
And, as Shakespeare said it, 'therein lies the rub.'
Mentally, I am done with the post. And then I sit down in front of the keyboard and I go blank. And wind up doing a sports post like this one.
Why do I call this a sports post? Its a fishin' and huntin' post.
I start off fishin' and huntin' for an idea, and then wind spending all my time talkin' about the one that got away.
Rim shot, please? A little help here? What does it take to get a rim shot in this joint?
